shogun knee injury

"I know about my mistakes in the fight against Forrest. I will never use this surgery as an excuse for my lost [sic]. I have all the responsibility for the bad result, now I just want to look for the future. I would like to thank all my fans that are supporting me in this difficult moment and I promise you all that I will be back better than ever. I know that I lost the first battle but not the ‘war' for the UFC belt."
